Brett Favre had two bestselling NFL jerseys in 2008

The NFL released their list of Top 20 selling jerseys of 2008, via an e-mail from NFLShop.com. The Wrangler-wearing one had two jerseys on the chart, with his Jets #4 topping the list while his Packers #4 finished in 13th. Here's the complete breakdown:

1. Brett Favre, NYJ
2. Tony Romo, DAL
3. Eli Manning, NYG
4. Troy Polamalu, PIT
5. Marion Barber, DAL
6. Adrian Peterson, MIN
7. Jason Witten, DAL
8. Peyton Manning, IND
9. LaDainian Tomlinson, SD
10. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT
11. Tom Brady, NE
12. Terrell Owens, DAL
13. Brett Favre, GB
14. Brian Westbrook, PHI
15. Devin Hester, CHI
16. DeMarcus Ware, DAL
17. Matt Ryan, ATL
18. Brian Urlacher, CHI
19. Jay Cutler, DEN
20. Brandon Jacobs, NYG

Not surprisingly there are five Cowboys jerseys in the Top 20, providing further evidence to their claim of being "America's Team." I would assume that Favre Packers jersey sales dipped considerably in the last quarter of '08, when Favre was traded to the Jets. Obviously there was a lot of enthusiasm when Favre arrived in New Jersey, rocketing his Jets shirt to the top.

There is no word on where Giants "Harrison Smith, #17" jerseys ended up on the list.
